Volume 4 – German gymnastics, sport and games at school and in sport clubs. Youth sport between 1870 and 1932. [in German]
Roland Naul/Ludger Jonischeit/Uwe Wick
At the time of the German Empire and in the Weimar Republic, the physical education curriculum included various forms of gymnastics, games and sport, each with its own emphasis. These same elements also lastingly shaped the unregimented physical activity of children and young people and the first clubs that were organised for them in the late 19th and early 20th century. This book provides an overview of the development of school sport, the early days of club gymnastics for schoolchildren, and young people’s sport in games and sports clubs. It includes a historical retrospective of the previously almost unknown early interaction between schools and clubs as institutions for the development of youth sport in the period from 1870 to 1932. The volume comprises an extended summary in English.
